There was a mission available with ending date 16/11. As I didn't have enough time I was gonna finish it today (16/11) but it's already gone

I thought missions were available until the very last day stated, so 16/11 included?

I guess you mean the weekly mission Battle of Guadalcanal...and for this the announcement is very clear:

I guess it ended at 6:00 this morning, the usual time in winter, so it WAS available until the very last day stated.

And basically I've never kept a mission I want to complete until the very last day so I didn't really know

Our missions unfortunately end in the early morning. Why? Because that is the usual time for server restarts, updates etc. - it is better to have missions by default start / end at that time and thuis not get them interrupted so much (esp. as it is also a low activity time so less chance of someone's mission ending in the middle of battle).

 

Unfortunately the interface shows just day, not the hour - maybe we can bump a suggestion up to get a timer similar to Clan Battle prime time there :)

Couldn't you just add a timer so that the mission ends at midnight before the server update? Honestly, this would not only provide a lot of clarity and remove confusing situations but it would also be great for the daily container grind as well as with other timed stuff (even though it would give us a few hours less to grind the missions in).

And the people still playing at that time would be furious.

I think the chosen time is the best time for ending missions, but I agree that a timer would be nice.

As ColonelPete points out, this timing would hit still quite a lot of players - the early morning is selected both for updates. Least chance of interrupting someone mid gameplay session.

True - but then you could add hours to the given time frame and then as some suggested present a timer with X days left which become X hours left once it’s only 24 hours left. However, I guess you already have enough suggestions to think about so I’ll only send a “have a nice day” along the way :)
